Our 8th graders have been hard at work on two action civics projects this fall. One class decided to focus on rising teen suicide rates and the other worked on distracted driving (specifically texting while driving). Their goals are to increase the state budget for suicide awareness and prevention programs in school, and pass a hands-free phone law in Massachusetts. You will find the links to their PSA videos below.

Please send in your Box Tops (mailbox in the front lobby). We have used the money earned from the Box Tops to pay for the RIF (Reading is Fundamental) program, which provides every student with a FREE book to keep.
